These words which burn the page,
Would have scorched your skin
Starting like a mountain stream on your neck
Snaking its way down your hilly breasts,
And resting on some plateau.
Panting, out of breath,
Swearing until I've taken notice.
Little black scribbling melts away
Drowned by beads of salt on your naval
And a day vanishes in the dark of your being.
Squabbles with friends wiped out
The shove in the bus
The dirty look of passers by
Erased when the words kiss your skin. 
The room resounds with 
Little drops of buttons on the floor,
The hissing of clothes coming off 
And the whispering of the vernal woods.
With every inch of your skin
A kingdom won.
With every kiss,
A dragon slayed.
And when you drag me inside you,
A pilgrimage of sorts,
Visiting life...Creating one.

"With every inch of your skin, a kingdom won"....."a pilgrimage of sorts". This is wonderful to read. Love the idea that the slights of the day disappear when one is home with their loved one. Lovely writing.

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! You carry your metaphor throughout, never letting it get loose or misdirected. Your inferences are subtle yet clear. The flow is perfect... not too fast, not too slow. The passion conveyed is one most would yearn to experience. Bravo!

You have certainly composed a most passionate poem, filled with emotion,
imagery and passion.

I think this is one of the most wonderful erotic poems I've ever read! So incredibly sensual and emotional, both, in such clear, unpretentious language. It moves me deeply.
